Chapter 22: My Queen
Translator: Atlas Studios Editor: Atlas Studios
It was a tiring day.
Shen Qianshu felt like she was trampled upon multiple times, and her body was numb and aching.
Tong Hua was very obedient and mature. He went into the kitchen, poured a cup of water, and placed it in front of Shen Qianshu.
Shen Qianshu patted him on the head and said smilingly, “Tong Hua, you scared mummy today.”
“Mom, I’m the one who got scared!”
Shen Qianshu laughed and pinched his chubby face.
“Where’s Yuan Hui?” Tong Hua asked.
“I don’t know. I was taken away by your foster daddy , so I don’t know where everyone went.” Shen Qianshu replied. She thought it over, and whatever Yuan Hui and Gu Xiaoli did still haunt her. She would be lying if she said she was not upset. In fact, she felt a little wronged. Why did they treat her like that?
But in life, logic did not exist.
Just like that night, she could not blame anyone.
Blame Ye Ling?
But he had no self-control. It was not his intention to harm her.
She never touched the check even once.
Even in times when she could not afford to have a meal for days, she did not touch it.
Tong Hua asked, ” Foster daddy, huh?”
He had already forgotten who his biological parents were. Ever since he could remember, Shen Qianshu was her mother. But deep down, he knew that he was not actually Shen Qianshu’s biological son. Yet, he loved her. Shen Qianshu was like his big tree–his everything.
“Mom, was that man little brother’s daddy?”
Shen Qianshu’s face stiffened. It had been seven years, and she never mentioned much about the child who passed away. She looked down and caressed Tong Hua’s face.
“He looks nice. Little brother must be very handsome too,” Tong Hua said. “Mom, do you like little brother’s daddy?”
Shen Qianshu did not reply.
Although his mummy never told him, Tong Hua knew that little brother’s heart was in him. He prolonged his life, so mummy treated him as her lifeblood. Even so, he did not mind.
He only had his mummy.
“Children should be seen and not be heard. Call Aunt Xiaojuan and tell her we’re safe. Then, wash up and go to bed.”
“Yes, my queen.”
It was a silent night, and Tong Hua was deeply asleep.
On the other hand, Shen Qianshu could not fall asleep. Today was too intense, and it brought up too many memories.
She was pregnant when she went home, but she could only hide it. She only dared to tell Lin Xiaojuan about it. In order to make the money to raise the child, she stayed up at night with her huge belly to edit pictures for people and did designing. In the end, she was over-tired, and the fetus was in the wrong position. The doctor told her the child was healthy and would not be affected. However, when she was giving birth, she was told that the child only survived for ten minutes. She did not even have time to kiss him on the cheeks.
When she first gave birth, she cried and screamed. She was in great despair and wanted to die.
Tong Hua and her son were born on the same day, date, and time, but he had heart failure. The infant was too small and could not get a transplant. Tong Hua’s mother was a physician, and she begged for someone to donate their organs to save him. Shen Qianshu could not bear to see another person having to deal with her pain, so she donated her child’s heart and successfully rescued Tong Hua. Tong Hua was a name given by her; the fact that he could live was like a story that came out from a Tong Hua[ 1. Tong Hua means fairy tale. ].
Since then, she did not meet Tong Hua’s family again until Tong Hua was two. At that time, his parents got into a car accident and lost their lives. On their deathbed, they wished for their child to be given to Shen Qianshu. Tong Hua’s mother kept apologizing but did not finish her sentence before death took her away. Shen Qianshu never understood why she apologized.
Was it for begging her to donate organs back then?
